IS005:
Increasing Success of Underwater Glider Missions.


Session ID#: 28052

Session Description:
With the advancement of underwater glider technologies and applications, the ocean observing community is examining means to encourage greater collaboration with decision-makers, glider operators, and data users. National and international delegates congregated at the IOOC US Underwater Glider Workshop in January 2017 to identify methods to enhance coordination, addressing science, technical, and data gaps. This session is intended to allow glider operators and data managers to present on how they are improving overall success of glider missions within the areas of ocean monitoring, operational reliability, data management, and interagency and international coordination.
